Korea’s dog-meat industry is disgusting!

July 4th, 2007 . by Gerry-Bevers

Koreans profess a fear of American beef, yet essentially leave their filthy dog-meat industry unchecked. I wish a week-long case of diarrhea on all the dog-meat lovers in Korea.

    By the way, 10 “dog days” of Korean dog eating summer has started. I urge the foreigners living in Korea, who love their dogs, to keep an eye on them.

    Dog eaters can’t both ways. If you say there is nothing wrong with eating dog, then there is nothing wrong with eating dolphins. To say otherwise would be extremely hypocritical. There is no difference.

    Don’t get me wrong though. Personally, I find dog eating and dolphin eating equally barbaric. I am fairly certain that the Japanese don’t torture the dolphins to death to increase the sexual potency when ingesting it. I would hope the Japanese are above such backwards witch doctor shamanistic thinking. However, I have found with things like “Fan death” that science need not apply in Korea a lot of the time.

    thormodr. I’m glad you have the logic to see the hypocritical nature of someone, whose culture slaughter dolphins, critisizing another culture which traditionally consumes dog meat.

    However, the way the Japanese slaughter dolphins is in no way even close to humane.

    Watch youtube: Dolphin massacre Japan… to see what real animal cruelty is all about.

  5. comment number 5 by: Richard

    Of course, the Japanese are above such “backward torture.” The dolphins are disoriented by interuppting their sonar and forcing them into a state of panic in shallow waters. A few are speared or slashed to immobilize them and keep the pack together, as dolphins do not leave family members. Then, they are hoisted out of the waters by their tails, forcing them to endure the drying of their skin as they are dragged on the ground (or as they flail around in the back of a pickup truck). Then, finally comes an end to their suffering, as they are hacked to death. Much less inhumane. Again, just showing how prominent bias is on this website.
    By the way Thormodr, nice job incorporating an irrelevent statement in an attempt to undermine Korea. Is disparaging Korea a sort of mental masturbation for you?

    I totally agree with you.

    Don’t get me wrong though. Personally, I find dog eating and dolphin eating equally barbaric.

    I will respect your feelings against eating dogs and dolphins. I will not try to persuade you to eat them.
    But at the same time if you want to persuade someone to stop eating them, please try to show us that your claim has universal validity. I am saying it many times, why do we have to follow your values? Why is eating dogs and dolphins barbaric, while eating cows, pigs, fish not? If you don`t, I must say you are just trying to label people barbaric.
    Sorry, if I angered you but I would like to hear your opinions.

    Please note that dolphins eat fish that fishermen are trying to catch in their trap(net). Though I cannot tell whether there are
    such reasons behind the killings of dolphins in the link you provided, but I believe that is the main reasons in many cases of killing dolphins. Dolphins are causing harm from the fishermen`s point of view.
    And about the arguments of humane or not, fishermen are hunting in the nature. To get the best results, I mean to catch (or kill) as many as one could in the least cost, what kind of alternatives do they have? They are not chosing their ways under the intention to treat them brutally. They are doing so to act economically. Can you really blaim them? I think they have the customs of eating dolphins but at the same time, if you can educate the dolphins not to eat fish, at least the fish caught in the net, they will not try to eat the dolphins so often. Didn`t your ancestors kill the wolves or bears that ate your ancestors` livestocks?
    Even if the reason of killing dolphins were only to eat them, what is wrong in chosing the most economical way?

    Interesting, Brian. How about ripping apart a live 2 month-old piglet? I guess that’s not “real animal cruelty” is it?
    People should take a closer look at what Koreans do during protests. Let’s take those into consider ation those in determining how backward and barbaric a culture is. For instance, in order to express their opinions Koreans:
    – Rip apart live pigs
    – Cut their fingers
    – Throw feces
    – Display severed heads of dogs
    – Carry blazing torches
    … and more.
    Thanks to the Internet, the world is getting a better idea of Korean culture through photos like these:

    Well done in promoting the image of your country and culture, Koreans! I’m sure you’re all proud of your sophisticated, superior culture. Fighting!

  9. comment number 9 by: Richard

    ^Are you serious? You believe the inhumane slaughtering of dolphins is justified by the fact that they sustain themselves on fish? As far as I know, one can earn much more profit selling dolphins-derived products in comparison to fish (in general). I am not surprised that one on this website would rationalize such “backward” behavior with such ridiculous reasoning. Japan has no flaws.
    By the way, dolphin-slaughtering season is coming up (October and November).

  10. comment number 10 by: General Tiger

    Richard:
    The only problem I see with killing dolphins is the use of sonar to scramble their sense of direction. That causes much stress to them, to my knowledge. Besides that, I don’t really see the point of arguing against eating them (just like I don’t care about dog meat as long as they’re not killed inhumanely.)

  11. comment number 11 by: GarlicBreath

    Dick- Can you just give a straight answer. You seem to be saying you are against killing dolphins because its barbaric. And you are also against killing dogs? Yes? No? I suspect, you don’t mind killing and eating dogs. So tell the truth.

    Well, Koreans kill and eat dolphins. In fact greenpeace exposed a dolphin killing factory in Ulsan and shamed the Koreans into closing it.
    .

    The hunting of whales is banned internationally but the South Korean government currently sanctions a national trade in the meat of whales and dolphins that are caught accidentally in nets. However, government statistics show around a 100 times more whales are “accidentally” caught in Korea than in countries that do not have a domestic whale meat market.

    Koreans keep a tight wrap on the actual number of dolphins that are killed in Korea.

    Greenpeace is already taking pot shots at the host. It claims it has discovered plans to build a whale and dolphin meat processing factory in Ulsan.

  12. comment number 12 by: egg

    Yes, absolutely.
    Why is is backward?
    Why is it ridiculous?
    Japan has flaws but killing the dolphins is not one of them.
    Take care of your territorial waters and mind your own business.

  13. comment number 13 by: egg

    I have said too much. Maybe I will reply again when I get calmer. Sorry.

  14. comment number 14 by: Richard

    I have no problem with the fact that Koreans eat dogs; nor do I have a problem with the Japanese consumption of dolphins. I am merely demonstrating the widespread preferential bias of Japan over Korea on this website. Both countries have induced worldwide controversy over the techniques in which the animals are killed, and yet some members here still attempt to justify the behavior of the Japanese, and continue to condemn the Korean practices.
    For the record, I am completely against the inhumane treatment of animals. But, again, to clarify, I am not writing to argue my beliefs, just merely to demonstrate.

    egg, I agree that Japan has flaws. I also agree that killing dolphins is not one of them, so long as the animals are captured and finished off in a humane manner.

  15. comment number 15 by: GarlicBreath

    Dick-

    nor do I have a problem with the Japanese consumption of dolphins.

    Tricky dicky, is that why you said this:

    I suppose it is permissible by your standards for a country to slaughter thousands of dolphins, which are amongst the most intelligent of animals, in a “barbaric” fashion annually…

    And this.

    Of course, the Japanese are above such “backward torture.” The dolphins are disoriented by interuppting their sonar and forcing them into a state of panic in shallow waters. A few are speared or slashed to immobilize them and keep the pack together, as dolphins do not leave family members. Then, they are hoisted out of the waters by their tails, forcing them to endure the drying of their skin as they are dragged on the ground (or as they flail around in the back of a pickup truck). Then, finally comes an end to their suffering, as they are hacked to death. Much less inhumane…

    Tricky dicky. The only reason why suddenly you have no problem with eating dolphin is because I exposed your hypocracy. You are just trying to derail the topic with your wacky Corean logic.
    .
    Tricky Dicky, if you are against killing dolphins then go cut off some fingers, shave your head, eat the flag or whatever Koreans do to protest. But this thread is about KOREAN DOG FLESH EATING.
    .
    And its not racism to point out that Koreans are dog flesh eaters anymore then pointing out that Koreans and Japanese eat dolphins and whales. (I suspect that horses will be the next red herring)

    Richard
    Thanks for explaining. I think I got what you wanted to say. And I agree with you. Forgive me for losing my temper. And if you find me making a contrdiction including other articles please point it out. I am willing to learn. Thanks again.
    And the below is just my impression.

    so long as the animals are captured and finished off in a humane manner.

    It is worrying, I agree that killing them as soon as possible and in a way they feel pain least is needed, but it might be difficult.
    For the fishermen the first priority would be catching (or killing) them as many as they could. They will be busy taking care not to release them, during the hunt. And I guess there will be no way which is free from criticism of inhumane. But I guess they need to think about their ways and improve them somehow.

    Garlic face is a retard. Are you not smart enough to comprehend Richard’s simple but justified observations?

    Here it is again, although I don’t think you’re smart enough to comprehend it:

    Here it is again, although I don’t think you’re smart enough to comprehend it:

    I have no problem with the fact that Koreans eat dogs;

    Why is it that Coreans seem to have the same opinion? Blian speaks for Trickydicky? And Trickydicky speaks for Blian. Heck I will just hereforth call you two dogeaters DickBlian. (notice how the dick is behind the Blian, just the way Blian likes it)

    For the record, I am completely against the inhumane treatment of animals

    Unless it is dogflesh.

    One question to the DickBrian. Who are the “some members” you refer to:

    yet some members here still attempt to justify the behavior of the Japanese, and continue to condemn the Korean practices

    Show me “some members” who justify Japan eating dolphin and condemn Korean dog flesh eating. I call you DickBlian a liar.

  19. comment number 19 by: GarlicBreath

    Has Korea been importing dogs from Hungry to eat? I thought a diplomat was supposed to be diplomatic. Its a shame that Korea has such a turd like Eom Seock-Jeong who threatens NGO’s and the democratic process, as a diplomat.

    Budapest, July 18 (MTI) – South Korea’s Ambassador to Hungary Eom Seock-Jeong has called on a Hungarian animal rights group on Wednesdsay to provide evidence for their claim that Hungarian exports of dogs had provided ingredients for health diets in S Korea this summer.

    In a letter to the activists, Seock-Jeong threatened “effective action” if the activists are unable to underpin their claims with facts. He added that very few countries choose to interfere with the cultural habits of other nations including their eating habits.

    South Korea has also been attacked by other European organisations for its wide-spread custom of eating dog meat as part of “summer health diets.”

    Hungary’s dog exports to South Korea amounted to over 9,000 dollars last year, up by 3,000 dollars from 2005. However, there is no official information to the effect that the dogs were intended or used for human consumption.

    “Effective action” is really a diplomat talk for “I’m gonna sue your ass,” no?

    Well, Ihave eaten dog meat before, and I must say it wasn’t bad at all. Dog meats are consumed by many other nations, like China, Mongolia, japan and Vietnam. And other parts of SE asia.

    How about Italian eating cat meat. I think just going after Korean is unfair.

    Japanese killed thousands of Korean native dogs during WWII, not only for making food for army also for making winter coat for military.

    Yes of course you have. You are a Korean. A dog eater.

    Koreans drink liquifed cat. Sick.

    Japanese killed thousands of Korean native dogs during WWII, not only for making food for army also for making winter coat for military.

    War is over buddy, time to accept that. BTW, Korea faught with the Japanese (not bravely, but as cowards that beat POW’s)

  24. comment number 24 by: HanComplex

    The Lost Nomad put up this interesting link on the subject.

    Professor Ann Yong-geun of Chungcheong University waded into the controversy last month when he said that there is a nutritious property of dog meat that cannot be proven by Western medical science. He said in a CBS radio program that although dog meat has less protein and fewer minerals than pork, chicken or beef, eating dishes like gaejangguk and boshintang (dog stew) mysteriously allow more energy to enter the body.

    This “nutritious property” really sounds convincing. But wait, there’s more:

    Yes, it is, especially gaesoju, or dog wine. Gaesoju is a fermented drink that is distilled by cooking the dog in a double boiler. Moreover, our ancestors used the dog’s penis in the gaesoju and as a medicine to supplement energy.

    I wonder if this has anything to do with why Koreans, mostly males, continue to defend dog consumption. Hmm.

    Where is my dog? Oh my Corean neighbor ate it.

    When will coreans stop this barbaric act of eating dogs.

    Firstly, this involved killing it. Then Park decided to try scorching the dog before cooking it properly,

    Burn the dog alive. Corean style eating.
    .
    BARBARIC!

  30. comment number 30 by: GarlicBreath

    Good news Gerry! Corea was listening to you!
    .
    The filthy disgusting barbaric and unsanitary corean dog mean industry might be cleaned up. It will always be barbaric to eat dogs, but at least coreans (not all) won’t torture them before eating them.

    The Seoul metropolitan government will ask the central government to include dogs in the legal definition of livestock, in a bid to ensure hygienic butchery and processing of what some Koreans regard as a delicacy. A Seoul official said there are 528 canine meat restaurants in Seoul,

    Interesting that the coreans think dog meat is a delicacy. A delicacy is something that is ” considered rare or luxurious
    .
    It is strange for me to think that coreans think that eating a mangy dog is luxurious. I have heard that coreans (not all) steal dogs and eat them, and I have NEVER EVER seen a lost or homeless dog in Corea. So I guess to Coreans a dog can be rare.

  31. comment number 31 by: GarlicBreath

    Coreans are so dog-gone mad for dog meat they will even eat dogs used in medical research.

    Two people in South Korea have been arrested for allegedly selling dogs which had been used in medical research to restaurants.
    The authorities in Seoul say the dogs had been infected, or vaccinated, with disease-causing agents, which could make humans ill if the dogs were eaten

    Only barbarians eat dog meat.

    The Korea Association of Animal Protection doesn’t like dog meat either: http://www.news.com.au/heraldsun/story/0,21985,23474777-23109,00.html

    Snopes talks about dog meat too: http://www.snopes.com/critters/edibles/dogsoup.asp

    Yeah, the rumor discussed in that Snopes article is false. Joey Skaggs, a media gadfly, pretended to head a company importing US dogs to be used as meat in South Korea. Skaggs does this to embarrass the people who believe the stories.

    Quote – ‘Skaggs believed the American public, with its own prejudices regarding which animals it’s okay to consume, would go bonkers when confronted with the dog-meat proposal — and he was right. Animal rights groups and public officials took the story completely out of his hands — in the process, he believes, exposing their own racism and cultural bigotry. One of the messages of the prank, Skaggs maintains, was “We are culturally intolerant. It was about prejudice, as illustrated in the letters, faxes and calls I received.” ‘

  33. comment number 33 by: GarlicBreath

    Somewhere between two and four million dogs are estimated to be consumed in South Korea every year, but the slaughtering and processing is carried out in dirty environments and poses a risks to diners’ health.

    Millions of dogs are tortured in corea in filthy conditions, and they call it a delicacy.
